A 40-year-old Fort Myers man was convicted Thursday of selling drugs.

The State Attorney’s Office said Jermaine Otis Dampier was found guilty of two counts of sale or delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, and possession of cocaine with intent to sell or deliver.

The SAO said Dampier sold drugs to an undercover detective with the Fort Myers Police Department on July 31, 2019.

The drug in question is Eutylone, or what is known as substituted cathinone, which is a synthetic stimulant in the same class as bath salts.

He was sentenced Monday to 180 months in prison, with a 36-month mandatory minimum.
